One of the best we have heard, is as follows: A naval officer had just landed on the wharf at San Francisco, and seeing a ragged, dirty looking fellow lounging around, hailed him, saying— "Halloo, my good fellow, if you'll lay a hand and take this trunk to the hotel, I'll give you two dollars." 'fTwo h —Is," exclaimed the indignant lounger,'.'why, stranger, I'll give you an ounce of gold, to carry it up yourself." "Agreed," replied the officer, who, shouldering bis own heavy trunk took it to the hotel, followed closely by his ragged employer, who promtly handed over to him the ounce of gold, thus enabling the officer to pocket sixteen dollars very easily. The best speculation, however, of which we have heard, was that of a loafer who stole a hen, and invited four returned miners to dine upon her, at the reasonable rate of five dollars each. In preparing the hen for cooking, our loafer found in her craw two ounces of gold. After par taking freely of the hen, the loafer found the following to be the profits of the trans actio sts at $5 each, i ices of gold found in the 32 Total profit s on hen, $52 [Delta. Cold Comfort for ihe Martyrs. —The Cleveland Plain Dealer,- a Cass paper, thus rebukes the Washington I'nion for its perpetual, sickening howl, of proscrip. tion, &c., over every removal made. It will apply with equal force, to a great many anti-administration papers: "If Father Ritchie supposes the people care one fig about all such troubles at Washington, heisgreatly mistaken. They do not spend their money, time and exer tions at elections, simply that a few cor morants can fatten on the spoils. The great mass of the people care nothing about office. All they want is a good govern ment, and these accounts in the would be government orgau, of the groans of office -holders at our national capital, are sickly and disgusting. Somebody must hold the offices and discharge the duties, and under a democratic admisistration, we claim this should be done by demo crats. But when the people have in a constitutional way declared for a change, die game—submit like men—and not go out of office blubbering like louts." A Newspaper Volume. —Mr. Vatte mare has invited all the editors and pub» lishers of the United States to send to the Bostond Daily Bee, (the editor of which has undertaken to form the collection,) a copy of their papers, published on the 4th of July, 1849, with a copy of each semi weekly and weekly which they may issue during the first week in July. Papers pub lished in other American nations, and old or rare newspapers, will also be thankfully received. Acknowledgements will be made through the Bee of all donations received. The design is to have them ar* ranged and placed in the "American Li bray" at Paris. (X/^A good joke is told of a young couple riding home from church after their marriage. The day had been cloudy, and the young man seeing the clouds break away said, "I hope we shall have a little sun." The young wife replied very bon est ] y "As for me, I should rather have a "J 1 ' little daughter. Execution of Sarah Thomas. —The Montreal Courier, of the 5th inst., gives the particulars of the execution of Sarah Thomas, at Bristol, on the 1st inst,, for the murder of Miss Jefi'eries, and her confession of the deed. It says: "The final scene was of a most revolting character. The prisoner, instead of be ing resigned to her fate, contested it with the officers, and literally had to be car ried to the gallows and executed amid screams for life, which did not cense until the fatal holt was drawn. The following is her confession of the circumstances of the murder, signed by her own hand. Two days before the murder was committed, Miss Jefi'eries called me up to her bed-room and attempted to strike me. She also lock ed me is the kitchen during the whole of the night. At 5 o'clock in the morning she unbolted the door, and told me to make a fire in her room. I thought then to have struck her; but did not do so. On the fol lowing night I slept in her room, but did not coutemf late murdering her till between 5 and 9 o'clock in the morning, when I got up, went down stairs, and returned with a stone, with which, while Miss Jefferies was asleep, 1 struck her on the head three times. Between the second and third blows, she made some sort of a noise, and the last words 1 heard her say wese, "Christ God!" I then dressed my self, robbed the house, flung the dog down the privy, locked up the house and went home. I committed the murder and rob bed the house with my own hands, and no one else had anything whatever to do with it; neither did I mention having done so to any person. 1 regret exceedingly having committed so horrible a crime, and I pray to the Almighty God for forgive ness. I never should have committed so dreadful a crime had Miss Jefferies' con* duct been less provoking. After Miss Jefferies had died, I remained in the room for more than an hour. I then went home and did not return until about nineo'clock, in the evening, when I went for two box es, but did not go into mistress's room.— On leaving the house, I saw a strange man standing opposite, who carried my boxes as far as the infirmary, for which I gave him 6d. I then took a fly and went home. Tattlers and Slanderers.—We clip the following good hints and truthful remarks from the Boston Recorder; and, in our opinion, we could not occupy the same amount of space to a better purpose, than by giving them a place in our columns, as there are, unfortunately foi society, many persons to whom they are peculiar ly appropriate. ."There are those who spend much of their time in talking about the faults and failings of their fellow beings. Would it not be well for such to pause and ask themselves, Is it profitable? Will it benefit me or my neighbor? Ab, no, it is not their intention to benefit in this way any human being. If those who thus openly speak evil of their neighbors or acquaintance deserve the censure and indignation of a candid community, how should we despise and detest those who try to injure the innocent, virtuous, and highminded—those who not only nvoid the appearance, but shrink from the very thought of evil as vile and contaminating, and this done in such a way too, that the iujured have no opportunity to defend themselves. How wrong, how degrading to humanity is such conduct! Again the question is asked, Would it not be wise for all such persons, slanderers, whoever they may be, or whoever they are, to pause and review their conduct, repent, and "do works meet for repentance." Hospitable.-*- ii Do make yourselves at home, ladies," said a female to her visi ters, one day, "I'am at home, myself, and wish you all were?" Society in Brazil. —The Journal of Commerce give the following remarkable picture of the state of society in Brazil:— " Of the seven millions constituting the entire population of Brazil, three millions are estimated to be negro slaves; two and a half millions, aboriginal Indians and free negroes; and the residue, a million and a half, whites. The social state of the population is not marked by the distinc tion of color, so operative elsewhere in the production of classes, but only by that of freedom and servitude. The blacks have access to all, and are in possession of many offices of honor and trust, and engage in every department of business. The white race and the black meet on terms of perfect equality in social inter course, and intermarry without scruple, provided there exists no obstacle in the re lative position in life of the respective par ties. A writer in the North American Re view knew 'the wife of an Admiral, whose hue was of the darkest among Africa's daughters,' and mentions 'the dismay of an American diplomatic agent, at the entrance of a venerable jet black col onel into the court, where he had just un dergone his presentation.' We have the same authority for the fact, that, not Jong since, the Brazilian ambassador to Eng land was a mulatto, and that at the present time a large majority of the army, as well officers as privates, is of African descent." Corn Story. —Now for a story of the old South State, and a Utile of the tallest corn story you have heard lately. Being one day in the town of Y —, S. C., I listen ed to several planters stating the amount of corn gathered from an acre, the num ber of ears produced from a single stalk, &c. At length one who had remained silent commenced: "Well, I'll now tell my tale. Last spring, while walking up my corn field, I observed a stalk growing very luxuriantly, and being curious to know if it would produce better than oth ers, I stuck a stick which I had in my hand beside it. I thought no more about it, until being in the field one day about gathering time, I observed a very extraor dinary stalk of corn, and on counting the ears I found thirteen full grown, besides several nubins. It now occurred to me that this must be the stalk I had marked in the'spiing, and on looking for my stick, I found an ear growing on that!" A True Man. —Who is he? One who will not swerve from the path of duty to gain a mine of wealth or a world of ho nors; He respects the feelings of ail, the rich and the poor, the honorable and the humble. He is careful not to speak an unkind word to hurt the feelings of his servant as to his lord. He is as atten tive to the wants of a slave as to a prince. Wherever you meet him he is the same kind, accommodating, unobtrusive, hum» ble individual. In him are embodied the elements i»f pur« religion. No step is ta» ken which the law of God condemns— no word is spoken that pains the ear of man. Qlamping Down the Earthquakes. —An ignorunt Dutchman passing a number of railroad tracks in the coürse of a day's journey, and never having seen any before was nonplussed to account for their use.— At length after examining one of them for about twenty-five minutes, and scratching his head quite bad, he ejacula ted, "Tay mush be iron clamps to keep der earth -quakes from breakiug up der roat!" Lime. —Slacked lime, as a disinfecting agent, says the Alexandria Gazette, has no more virtue than so much sand. Uuslack ed lime according to the testimony of ail who have tried it possesses great virtue.— Where the former has been used it should be immediately substituted by the latter.
